La version française d’Il Molo
est disponible en Kindle.
D’habitude Martha Nathan est un modèle de tranquillité. En tant que professionnelle dévouée et épouse d’un artiste suisse reconnu, Martha mène une agréable vie d’expatriée à Genève et passe chaque année ses vacances d’été sur la côte italienne.
Lorsqu’une année plus tard, une série de rêves prémonitoires semble devenir réalité, Martha se sent profondément ébranlée. En tentant de comprendre ses sentiments à l’égard d’une connaissance perdue de vue depuis longtemps – ainsi que le rôle joué par ce dernier dans une mort mystérieuse – Martha doit se confronter à la manière dont des évènements tragiques et inattendus peuvent changer une vie pour toujours.
Kate Johnson has made it to mid-level management in the IT group of a pharmaceutical company. Her intelligence, technical competence and easy-going personality are among the keys to her success. When Kate watches a television interview of one of her ex-boyfriends, her demons of over 30 years ago are awakened. Over the coming weeks, she cannot shake the resurrected feelings of betrayal and injustice, and vows to confront the men she once loved. She methodically conceives and carries out her ingenious, and illegal, plan. As the two men, her family and friends seek to understand her actions, Kate accepts her punishment.

To all my followers and especially those who commented on my various blog posts, I wish you and yours a healthy and prosperous 2015.
For me, it’s one more year of working my day job and then I join the retirement crowd. If things go as planned, I will have a new book in 2015.
Worth a read, and I wanted to pass it on to my followers.
I’ve decided to change the way I blog.
From now on, day in and day out, all I’m going to post are blogs that consist of an image of my book’s cover, a link to where it’s for sale online and an excerpt from “another 5* review!” (the word another and the exclamation mark being the most important elements of that phrase).
Will you stick around?
I’m guessing not, and I wouldn’t expect you to. Were you to change your blog to consist exclusively of such blatant, repetitive, smug and utterly pointless – more on the pointless bit in a minute – content, I’m sure you wouldn’t expect anyone to hang around either.
And yet this is exactly how an alarming number of writers are treating Twitter every minute of every day.
I thought we all understood. I thought we had this thing down. I thought we’d all realized that people…

There’s a new website dedicated to self-published authors. If you want to expand the reach of your self-published book, or if you’re an avid reader and want to discover new authors, go to http://www.literaryselfies.com.
The site is the product of two self-publishers – myself and my aunt, Rebecca Sloan. You can see her books, Branches and Lake Effect on the website.
The site has gotten off to a good start. We’d love to have all the self-published authors join our site. There is no entrance fee. As part of our service to fellow indie authors, we will also post your book(s) on FB, Twitter and Pinterest.
After I self-published my first book, “Il Molo”, several friends asked me if I had always written? I often wanted to respond facetiously and say “No, only since the first grade.” However, I refrained myself because I knew that was not the answer they were looking for, nor the question they had asked. They were really asking if I considered myself an author.
The answer is not so easy. My “writing” background is eclectic. When I was a teenager I started a James-Bond-like novel in one of my school notebooks. Now I wish I could find the manuscript and work on it again. I am sure it was thrown out a long time ago. In a high school English course covering the short story as a literary genre, our daily homework assignment was to write a two or three page short story. I do remember concocting literary gems in the morning on the school bus. I have written innumerable proposals, two or three articles for a United Nations organization in Geneva, and numerous satirical articles for a clandestine in-house newsletter for which I was one of the editors.
Am I an author? That depends on one’s definition. Only time will tell. If no one buys my stories, then I guess the answer is clear. However, I have promised myself that I will keep writing. I don’t write every day, but I do think about writing every day. When I find the solution to a stumbling block in the narrative, then I start writing again. As I write other things come to mind, and I continue until the idea well runs dry.
Il Molo – published in March 2014 – is my first venture into the literary world of writing. I have always been an enthusiastic and voracious reader. My favorite reads are crimes, thrillers and mysteries. But I love a well written book in any genre. And for that nothing surpasses the classics. I’ll continue my story soon ….
